The Tiguan is executed in typical, understated Volkswagen fashion and while it hasn’t had an update in a while, it still stands out in the category. The front grille is clean and sophisticated and everything from the shape of the headlights to the rear lights and the gentle sloping curves give the Tiguan a covetable style.
The interiors aren’t as premium as I’ve seen in other, higher-level Volkswagens, but they still look good. This test car was fitted with the Luxury Package, which costs an extra $4000 and includes things like comfort seats, which are also leather appointed and heated, and a huge panoramic sunroof that goes all the way to the back row.
There’s a digital dash in front of the steering wheel, which looks modern, and the centre console is nicely designed, with closing panels over the storage and a very shiny multimedia screen that blends beautifully into its surrounds.
